Product Features

Control security from anywhere

Now you can have a hybrid security system which you can control from anywhere.

Arming and disarming, checking the system status or triggering outputs, you have ultimate control of your home security whenever required.

The versatile PCX 78 has all the features of its predecessor and more.

Connect up to 78 wired devices such as detectors, sounders and sensors, along with 64 wireless devices including magnetic contacts, smoke and CO sensors using the RIX32-WE, providing new levels of flexibility.

With 15 on-board outputs, which can be expanded to an incredible 85, you can also control programmable automation triggers such as shutters, garage doors and gates – all from the palm of your hand.

No on-site IT configuration

ProControl+ is connected through a cloud server, so there’s no need to set up static IP addresses or configure dynamic DNS (DYNDNS). Instead, simply set up an account on PyronixCloud.com.

Highly secure connection

ProControl+ and PyronixCloud communications are fully encrypted to the highest standard and no sensitive user data is stored on the PyronixCloud.

Easy installation

Program panel, create account, download app, connect to cloud and ProControl+ is ready to use.

Independent and sub-areas

Any input can be allocated to up to 8 areas and using proximity readers, the sub-areas can be armed/disarmed independently from main areas.

Inputs and outputs

The PCX 78 has 13 on-board outputs and up to 78 fully programmable inputs, including inertia inputs (analysed inputs). The on-board outputs can be expanded to 85.
